A Kid's Review
This review is from: Microsoft Publisher 2010 (Software)
I've used Publisher for about 10 years and upgraded to 2010 from 2000. I definately recommend the upgrade to anyone using 2000. Although I've used the program for a long time it has been for the same purpose, writing a monthly newsletter that includes text and photographs and is emailed in pdf format. The improvements in Publisher make my job much easier and faster. For example, I can save my file as a pdf and Publisher compresses files as well as the Adobe Acrobat Professional program I was using for that purpose. The difference is Publisher is faster. In fact, the program seems much more responsive than 2000 for pretty much everything I do. I'm not a big fan of the "ribbon" interface but I like using one standard interface and since I have Office 2007 this program provides that continuity. In terms of function, the ribbon makes most things a little easier and a few things a little harder. That said, I have 10 years with the old interface and a few weeks with the new. I'll adjust quickly. Still the ribbon is a case of fixing something that wasn't broke rather than fixing something that is broken. I'm talking about the help feature which IMO isn't and has never been very helpful.
I had no problems loading the program and no problems with printing. I'm using Win 7 and have a fairly new computer. I ordered from Amazon. I always seem to have a good experience with Amazon and this was no exception. Fast delivery and produce arrived in perfect condition.

Wow, is this really a kid's review??? I'm impressed with your writing, even if you are an adult! Not many adults are this well-spoken or knowledgeable and I'm taken aback by your intelligent review!
